United Grain Company (OZK). Mr Kabanov, whom the Ministry of Internal Affairs considers to be an active participant in the OPS created by the Ziyavudin brothers and Magomed Magomedov, is also charged with two episodes of fraud related to the procurement of equipment from the FGC UES.
According to Kommersant’s sources, the investigation almost completely unified the accusation to all the persons involved in the large-scale case of an organized criminal community created, according to the Investigation Department (SD) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Ziyavudin and Magomed Magomedov. A few days ago, the 210th article of the Criminal Code of the Criminal Code (organization of the criminal community and participation in it) was charged with two more persons involved in the investigation, the former director of the Moscow ADG Group, Alexander Kabanov and the head of the UGC department, Roman Gribanov. It should be noted that Mr. Kabanov was the first of all accused in this high-profile case to the SIZO: the Tverskoy court authorized his arrest in February of this year, whereas, for example, the Magomedov brothers chose such a measure of restraint in late March. Mr. Gribanov, on the contrary, was arrested by one of the last defendants in September.
Claims against the former ADG Group financial director of the SD of the Ministry of Internal Affairs arose during the study of the activities of the Summa group structures in which Mr. Kabanov worked for a long time. Since November 2008, he served as Vice President for Finance and Economics of Summa Capital LLC. In it, the accused was responsible for financial and economic policy, budget process, reporting, relations with credit organizations, etc. The Ministry of Internal Affairs considers the financier to be one of the active members of the Magomedov brothers OPS and incriminates him two episodes of especially large fraud (part 4 of the Criminal Code RF) when purchasing equipment from FGC UES. According to "Kommersant", the damage on them is about 300 million rubles.
Roman Gribanov, the former head of the business support department of the UGC, was also charged with participation in OPS. A former FSB officer, who had long been a witness in the case of the Magomedov brothers, was detained by the Chekists, who provide operational support of the criminal case, in September of this year. Mr. Gribanov, according to the investigators, was an accomplice in the embezzlement of OZK funds, accompanying in 2012–2013 the acquisition of grain from the Newbay Investments LP group of companies. Having received a full prepayment of $ 20.25 million for the delivery of grain from Ukraine and two contracts , Newbay has not fulfilled its obligations. And last year, the supplier was bankrupt. At the same time, the companies-guarantors, among which, according to SD of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, there was also “Admata” LLC, owned by Mr. Gribanov, did not compensate for the losses from contract losses. The investigation believes that the grain contracts were fictitious and were carried out exclusively for the withdrawal of funds from OZK to the company related to Ziyavudin Magomedov.
It is worth noting that there are seven episodes in the case of the Magomedov brothers and their associates. These include frauds in the preparation of land for the construction of the Baltika stadium in Kaliningrad, the reconstruction of the Khrabrovo airport in the same city, the arrangement of Krestovsky Island in St. Petersburg, where Zenit Arena was built. The total damage caused by the actions of the participants of the OPS, the result is estimated at 2.5 billion rubles. None of the defendants plead guilty. Today, the court will consider the petition of the investigation to extend the terms of the arrest of Ziyavudin and Magomed Magomedov.
